Fresno police have arrested one man who was wanted in a November convenience store robbery that was disrupted by an alert security guard, but they’re still looking for the second suspect.
Sgt. James Fowler said Christopher Arreola, 21, walked into the 7-Eleven at 3005 W. Ashlan Ave. with another suspect just before 2 a.m. on Nov. 28. Arreola was allegedly carrying an assault rifle.
A security guard who was inside the store noticed the two, suspected they were about to rob the place and fired his gun. Both would-be robbers ran away, said Fowler.
Police identified Arreola as one of the suspected robbers and after a short pursuit, arrested him Wednesday on suspicion of attempted robbery. He was booked into the Fresno County Jail.
